Author Information:



He hasn’t been with a woman in five years.
She hasn’t been with a real man … until now.


I’ve had enough of the crap that goes along with living in the city. So, I packed for a weeklong vacation in the mountains. Isolation in a cabin for the next seven days sounds like a good way to recoup and get my life back in order.

After getting lost while hiking, I stumble upon a cabin that has me questioning whether to ask for help, or if I should brave staying the night in the woods.


I left everything behind years ago after the woman I was with betrayed me. Now I work as a lumberjack and live my life as a recluse.

Being celibate for the last five years says a lot about my self-control, but I’m a man and have needs, and not giving into what I really want is hard as hell. But I can’t let myself get close to anyone, not even for a few hours. Getting close is how I got screwed over before.

As soon as I see Vivian, I know I have to have her. It’s been forever since I’ve had a woman. Because of a storm rolling in, she’ll have to stay with me overnight. We could do a lot of filthy things in that time.

I pride myself on my control, but when it comes to Vivian, I don’t know if I can keep my hands to myself.
I know I can’t.

I have needs, and it’s clear Vivian’s in need of a real man to help her unwind. I can certainly help her in that department.


This book is a short steamy one. I enjoyed it a lot! It will definitely make you swoon. The characters was well-developed and relatable. The attraction and chemistry between Jake and Vivian was instant. Jake has not been with a woman for 5 years and has a very good reason not to. That reason made him leave everything in the city and made a home in the mountains. That hurt made him be close off from everyone. I liked Jake.

Vivian wanted to take a break from the city, of what happened with her ex. She went up into the mountains and got up there in the afternoon. Then wanted to go on a hike. When I read that, I thought that was a dumb move on her part since she didn’t even know the land. As the story went on, she did have a head on her shoulders. I liked Vivian.

This book will pull at your emotions. The author intensely describe how the characters was feeling towards each other. Those two were great for each other. The story will suck you in until the very last page. A great book.

I have read one other book in this series. I will do a book review on that one as well.
